When an unusual line like Montale produces an almond scent, one can be sure it will be very different from other, typically simple and sweet, almond fragrances. Amandes Orientales, with its slight smokiness and an almost dry, raw feel is strikingly beautiful and most certainly unisex. As the fragrance develops, the rich, creamy vanilla note becomes prominent. Like almonds, it is not particularly sweet, but has an incredibly attractive smoky feel. The base of Amandes Orientales is a wonderfully soft skin scent, as sexy as it is comforting. Absolutely delicious!
